Probably the best way to do a motion sensing device is to use a passive infra-red sensor like you'd get with a burglar alarm.

Just read up on it and it seems entirely possible.  After all, the only thing a PIR does is trip a circuit.  The only problem you'd have is powering the unit.  Most home alarm systems are 12V DC.

We had a sentry gun at DV1, needless to say Jeff built it. They are rather cool, but have no understanding of the concept of overkill.

Hard to say. Build it and bring it down and we can tell you whether we'll allow it. In principle I can't see why not.

by the way,  do you need any materials, like wood for the buildings.
we are redo-ing the house and have taken the wall panels away.
also re-doing a new bedroom.

Hopefully, i can hide it, in a place like "the caves"

thats a good idea but you wouldnt want to lug
it around all the time and if you stayed in the same
place people would stay away and it isnt any fun
then.

Ah, think I read the idea wrongly when we talked about it briefly on msn.  A radio controlled one would be ok, I was thinking of something far more complicated...always the way with me :).
